In the User Roles, you can indicate that you wish a
group (say staff) to have "Course Tools" without them
requiring "SySOP" status. At most schools sysop is the
IT staff and they don't want to do all the course
maintenance, rather that is the responsibility of the
staff memebers and faculty heads themselves. So, either
there is an operation bug (in that it cannot be
assigned to anyone else other than those with sysop
status) or a required new feature.
Why?? well giving sysop status to staff at three
schools has allowed them to create multiple logins for
each student because of their UPPERcase/lowercase
mentality. AND more importantly a real PAIN to clean
up to keep the AUC DB consistant. (I'll make another
feature request for that now).
